Description

Tuberous water-lily

Nymphaea odorata subsp. tuberosa has large white flowers with beautiful yellow centre and green lily pads, not particularly free flowering. Suitable for a lake or large pool.

Water depth: 30-75cm (measured from the growing point of the plant)

Spread: Nymphaea odorata subsp. tuberosa should have an ultimate spread of 1.2m (4ft) once established.

Flowering time: June to September.

Planting time: Plant rhizomes should be potted during the growing season only, in the spring and summer. For this variety of waterlily we would recommend planting your water lily rhizome into a 5L fine mesh basket.

Aspect: Position in full sun, ideally with a minimum of 6 hours of sunshine each day.

Hardiness: Fully hardy,  grown outdoors in our lily ponds. We do not “force” our waterlilies in greenhouses or polytunnels so they are fully hardy and ready to be planted out straight away.

Species distribution: Eastern N. America.

Synonyms: Nymphaea tuberosa, Nymphaea ‘Tuberosa’.

We only sell healthy rhizomes with a productive crown. These should flower the same year as planting when following our instructions on caring for your water plants. Before posting your plant we wash off any soil and weeds attached to the rhizome, ensure there is no damage to emerging buds and leaves, and trim off any old growth.

You can see this plant on display within the National Plant Collection® of Waterlilies at Bennetts Water Gardens.
